The Fog Lit Book Festival is an annual series of not-for-profit events, workshops, panel discussions, and readings for readers and writers of all ages. It is our hope that the Festival encourages reading and writing while simultaneously recognizing the achievements of our many talented Canadian writers.

The Festival has brought more than 80 authors to the Saint John area to give readings of their books, host Q&A sessions, and perform book-signings and school visits. Fog Lit also provides author run workshops for attendees that enable them to better their storytelling skills and expand their writing portfolio.

Held in the Greater Saint John Area of New Brunswick, Fog Lit Book Festival is fun for all ages. With events like Kid Lit (for children), the Teen Coffee House, and Words & Wine (19+), there’s something for everyone! The Festival will take place in October 2020 at various local venues and due to the generosity of sponsors, all events are free to attendees.
